VILNIUS 's President Valdas Adamkus has questioned the ruling four-party coalition's ability to continue working together.

"After the decision made at the meeting of the Social Democratic Party's presidium, the president is unsure whether partners in the ruling coalition will be able to continue working as a team and whether the agreements stipulated in the coalition agreement will be retained," presidential spokeswoman Rita Grumadaite told the Baltic News Service.

The ruling Social Democratic Party presidium passed a resolution on Nov. 29, supporting Brazauskas and threatening to leave the ruling coalition if he resigns.

"The Social Democrats are determined to work in the coalition for the benefit of Lithuanian people, however, if determined attacks prevent Prime Minister Algirdas Brazauskas from doing his job, the Social Democrats will leave the parliamentary majority and the coalition government," reads the statement.
